Resident Evil 7 Drops SSSE3 SIMD Requirement – Now Supports Older CPUs

Have you been having trouble playing Resident Evil 7? I know a lot of people have been physically unable to get the game to work due to the system requirements, as the game’s code required the use of the SSE3 SIMD instruction set, which isn’t featured on a lot of CPUs from more than a few years ago. However, the developers at Capcom have been awesome and tweaked the game engine so that it no longer requires this instruction set.

The new patch means that a huge range of older CPUs will now be able to run the game with no issues, and that means more players, and more happy gamers overall.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything technical. Simply let the game auto-update via Steam the next time you login and you’re good to go.

Let’s hope that Capcom keeps bringing more useful updates like this in the near future!

Here’s the changelog, although it’s just one thing, so hardly extensive:

  • Added support for older generation CPUs. More specifically, the game no longer requires SSSE3 SIMD instruction set.
